Friends in Town
My college friend + family came for a visit. We did lots of tourist stuff around Portland. Pearl M and Pearl K (my friend's daughter) hit it off like peas in a pod.

The kids had a day off of school and so for a hike we went. Banana slug!
Witch's Castle had a lot of other people who decided to do the same thing on the same day. Ha, a secluded, mystical hike it was not. Also, the graffiti kind of ruined the look of the place. Boo.
It was on my Portland List, so glad we went. Definitely good for young kids and still neat that you end at a destination. I feel like you need a reward for hiking.

I blame being new to the school, but I didn't realize what a big deal The Rose Festival is at the kid's school and Portland as a whole. We arrive at school on Friday and every child is carrying in a rose to for a schoolwide competition. Categories included best single rose, miniature, arrangement and a slew of others.
My little man may have started to panic. We raced home, cut roses from the garden, and we were back at school in 20 minutes...only tardy by a few minutes.

Mom and Daughter Trip - Vancouver B.C.
Vera and I headed to Vancouver B.C. for a mother/daughter trip during spring break. Vera has been dabbling with being vegetarian and so we tried all types of vegan food in Vancouver. We also walked everywhere, putting 5-10 miles per day in while exploring the city.
Crossing the border:
Lebanese food for our first meal at Nuba was delicious.
We ended our first day eating gelato.
Day 2 included the Vancouver Aquarium, totem poles, and dinner at MeeT on Main...which if you hadn't told me the restaurant was vegan, I would have sworn I was eating chicken.
Day 3: We explored Capilano Suspension Bridge and went thrift store shopping. So much fun.
The steam powered clock...
